Why do political analysts continue to spew the notion of electoral divide? We know Latinos aren't a monolithic and that gays can be conservatives. Women don't care as much about contraceptives or abortions as some make them out to do.

So how do you explain nearly 100% of African Americans voting for Obama?

Groups other than whites vote race above all else.

How about single women voting with their lady parts. That is a something the left said but they took it down.

Diffiult to explain a lie. Clinton, Kerry, and Gore, received almost the same percentage of the African American vote as Obama, give or take a couple

How do you explain the same percentages of blacks voting for Clinton, Gore, or Kerry?

And whites don't cast votes based on good information anymore than any other race. Plenty of whites vote based on racial lines.

I'm Hispanic and I have never voted for a Hispanic congressman, governor, or President. At the same time, I'd never vote for a party that openly despises me and my family. I'd never vote for Rubio or Cruz.

Curious, how does a party openly dispise you and your family? Are you so well known that others actually know you and your family?

When influential and rank and file Republicans calls Hispanics invaders and criminals who are hell bent on destroying the US, I assume they are including me and my family
